Democracy and Disarmament Or a New American Empire? by Peter Kuznick
28 April 2003
Upon leaving office, President Dwight Eisenhower gave his famous speech to the American people warning of the dangers of a "military industrial complex" with a "misplaced power" that could "endanger our liberties or democratic processes." At a 2 April 2003 Palestine Center briefing Professor Peter Kuznick of American University echoed this warning and described it as "more relevant" today than ever before.
